ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) - Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTCQB: REDG), an innovative Intellectual Property company specializing in high-quality characters and content for use in a variety of media and entertainment, is pleased to announce that its feature film Last Blood has taken significant steps toward pre-production, the final phase before actual filming commences.
Based on the Keenspot graphic novel of the same name, Last Blood follows a small group of human survivors of a zombie apocalypse who are running out of food and are surrounded by their brain-eating foes. When they are offered protection from a contingent of vampires in exchange for their blood, the adversaries form a coalition in the hopes of surviving the zombie horde.
Notably, Vincent Guastini, head of V.G.P Effects & Design Studio has been tasked with providing the film's essential make-up and effects. Guastini is among the top effects artists in the industry, known for his work on Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, Kevin Smith's Dogma, The Devil's Carnival, Sushi Girl and the upcoming feature Under the Bed.
Additionally, Director Simon Hunter, whose previous credits include Mutant Chronicles starring Thomas Jane & John Malkovich and Lighthouse, starring James Purefoy, began casting Last Blood this week. Casting Directors Sig De Miguel and Stephen Vincent who cast United 93, The Good Shepherd, and The Cooler, will oversee the effort to identify the actors.
"We're huge fans of Simon Hunter. Mutant Chronicles... we've watched it here in the studio at least 10 times. After first talking to him he wanted to show things that have never been done, which is exciting for me," said Guastini. "After reading the comic I was like, wow, it's really a different type of story, a different take on the genre. I really think this could be a winning combination."
